Hear Jimmy Urine And Serj Tankian Join Forces On New Song ‘If It Ain’t You Today It Will Be You Tomorrow’
Mindless Self Indulgence’s Jimmy Urine is set to release his debut solo album, Euringer, this Friday and he’s given us yet another sneak peek with his latest track “If It Ain’t You Tomorrow It Will Be You Today.” The song, which features System of a Down’s Serj Tankian, is a play off of Martin Niemöller’s famous poem about the importance of standing up for others who may be different than yourself. Check out the track here via Revolver.
Speaking about the song, Tankian told Revolver Magazine, “Jimmy and I have been friends for years and I was excited to collaborate with him on his record. We’re both fans of nutty witty humor, so when he told me to just go off with whatever words come to mind, I grabbed some poetry book titles of mine I had in the vocal booth and randomly spewed them off in the mic. He then cut the ones he liked and mixed them. His record is bombastic and diverse, unlike most shit out there.”
Last week, Urine shared his collaboration with Gerard Way titled “Sailor In a Life Boat.” Aside from Way and Tankian, the upcoming album also features contributions from Grimes and Urine’s wife, Chantal Claret.
